'll hear, don, is president obama call for congress in washington, d.c. to do what legislators in colorado have done, which is colorado, the president will say is a frontier state, a state that has a history and respect for gun ownership, but they did take some measures to add restrictions on gun ownership including universal background checks, expanding them and a ban on high sxaft magazine, i believe over 15 rounds. so president obama will say that congress and washington, d.c. should do what colorado has done. of course, they're very different. the legislature in colorado is democratic. where as in washington, d.c. this is obviously the house is republican and there are some questions about whether or not this gun control legislation will be able to get through the senate, because not every democrat is on board and certainly some republicans are not as well. so that's basically his pitch today. >> okay, so that's a political battle here. let's go to the front lines, so to speak. you spent time with agents on the front lines of the nation's battle with gunle hav le havgun. tell us what y
. we are not in washington so we don't get many opportunities. it is fun, he is coming by our house. >> president obama is now a few blocks from here at the home that are democratic power players hosting a brunch at $35 ,000 a plate and then a lunch reception, a $5,000 plate luncheon but $10,000 if you want your picture taken with the president. the president's scheduled to leave the bay area here about 1:00 o'clock. we are live in atherton for abc7 news. >> the president has been facing backlash over the latest fundraisers. critics acouple him of crying to cozy up to the rich and seeking to raise their taxes. the supporters say it is time the country get as clear vision of what the president is trying to do. >> it is about time the country comes together over creating jobs and the people who do the jobs and not be fighting over dividing the country which is the message that is coming out of obama and what he is trying to do, i believe, is show respect for those who are building new companies and building a new economy and will help us be strong in the future. >> the president is sc
washington. peter? >> that's right. sources confirm the obama administration launched a broad push to get mortgages to people with weaker credit records and provide banks with a taxpayer guarantee that they won't make their payments. sources say the administration is working with banks, the federal housing administration, the justice department, and other agencies to help home buyers with lower credit scores, but who might not be able to make mortgage -- who might be able to make mortgage payments now, but can't qualify because the bank is still cautious and tight with the lending standards. critics worry is sews seeds for another financial crisis and taxpayer bailout. >> this is a bad mistake, and it was shown to be a bad mistake by what happened in 2008. we would not have had a financial crisis if we had not followed policies that were intended to increase home ownership by making financing available to people who otherwise would not be able to get mortgages. >> the boom and bust were not caused by providing 30-year fixed rate mortgages to generally qualified families. it was caused by
washington. peter? >> hey, cheryl, that's right. sources confirm the obama administration launched a broad push to get mortgages to people with weaker credit records to help them and housing market as interest rates are at record lows. critics worry it's reviving the risky lending practices that created the financial crisis, but the administration, according to the sources, is working with banks, and the federal housing administration, the justice department, and other agencies to help people who want to buy a home, and they may is a lower credit score right now, but they might be able to make a mortgage payment, and they can't qualify because banks are still being very cautious and tight with their lending standards. >> it's very important for lenders to underwrite carefully and make sure that a person can afford the loan across the entire term of the loan. this effort does nothing to change that. all it does is loosen the credit a little bit to get it to more people who can afford a loan. >> unless we understand what caused the 2008 financial crisis, we're going to make the same mistake

far. according to the "wall street journal," the obama administration has decided to turn down the volume. white house correspondent dan lothian live from washington on that part of the story for us this morning. dan, this report reveals that the administration has a game plan for showing military force, but it also says the white house is now dialing back. why? >> reporter: well, you're right. i mean, the report talks about sort of this playbook, if you will, that has specific steps that was signed off on by the administration. essentially, the u.s. flexing its muscles to try to turn down the temperature, not only in north korea but also in the region there. but this report pointing out that the steps that the u.s. has taken may have been more provocative, may have pushed and provoked this new leader, kim jong-un, more than intended, so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind that the u.s. presence has been increasing in the region in recent weeks starting back on march 8th when the u.s. flew b-52s as part of what was described as a routine mission. then about 2 1

hear what you are saying. but i'm talking about white house credibility. why that obama administration agenda stalled? is it because of the credibility issues? >> you know it is frustrating. you know businesses are not confident that what is coming out of washington -- all of the policymakers, white house and congress -- is something they did count on. this is the problem, they don't have confidence to invest back in their. and to know what their costs will be. you know businesses fundamentally take a multiyear time horizon in their planning, they don't know from -- when they don't know, as they don't know now what their costs will be because of government regulation, and taxiningation, y cannot plan, they cannot afford the risk of adding the jobs. liz: steve makes a great point, really, the white house saying spring break will slow job creation, come on, seriously? that is what they are saying is to blame? are you serious? come on. the medical device tax is going nowhere. there is little money now for infrastructure, $21 million verse what the president originally wanted. i think that
of 17.2 billion, largely because of tightening lending standards, the obama administration is pushing lenders to make it easier for people with weaker credit to obtain home loans. liz: peter barnes is joining us live from washington, d.c. with more on this development. peter? >> that's right, liz and david. sources confirming that the administration is planning a broad push to get mortgages to people with weaker credit records, credit scores, and, provide them with a taxpayer guaranty. sources say the administration is working with banks, the federal housing administration and other agencies to modify government rules to help homebuyers with lower credit scores who might be able to make mortgage payments now but can't qualify because banks are still being very cautious and tight with their lending standards. critics worry all of this will just tee up another financial crisis and future taxpayer bailouts. >> it's absolutely incredible to me we are going again in the same direction so soon after the financial crisis, simply because the administration and many others have refused to acce
in government policy. monday, washington base investment firm hype securities had a report predicting the obama administration would reverse course op big spending cuts that would have hit health insurers. they skyrocketed by 8.5%, a half hour later. the government announced the change in policy the report predicted. while the incident is throwing a spotlight on the controversial political intelligence industry, today's report by the investigative arm of congress concludeed the area is murky saying, quote, the prevalence of the sale of political intelligence is not known and therefore difficult to quantify. while currently little prevents lobbyists and washington insiders from gathering information, top congress could supplement existing gyps and laws to create stricter regulation. melissa: the washington post traveled the 1700 mile route and wrote about the experience in the recently published e-book, and, steve, what inspired you to do this? >> well, just seemed like a good way to bring this object to life rather than sit here and talk about whether or not this piece of paper was going to be
. president obama announced he'll return 5% of the salary in support of federal workers who will be furloughed. 5% is off the 400,000 take home pay equals $20,000. joining us from washington, d.c., what say you about this, mr. moore? >> great to be with you. look, it's a smart political move by the president. he was coming under attack from a lot of republicans for not being, you know, susceptible to same cut in salary that federal workers are, and i think this is a shrewd political move. members of congress should take a 5% cut. i'd permanently cut that pay by 5%. just in terms of fairness, and i hate to use that word, but i think it's a very good policy. dagen: in terms of the political momentum, how much does he get? when you say "shrewd," i think it means we'd have long lasting impact on the political pop pew particularity, think it will? >> maybe. it's a small gesture, but important. i applaud him for it. i'm not saying he's doing this for political reasons. i think he does feel kind of a brotherhood with the federal employees, and, look, i live in washington, d.c., people on my street ar
a candidate who you believe in and go to work for them. >> i agree. i was in washington d.c. in 2006 helping with the democratic senate campaign and senator obama said if i do this you will go with me, right? i said sure. right then i decided to go with obama over clinton before i even ask what was your biggest fund-raiser? i have all lady in san diego who pays 35,000. great. going up against the clinton administration he had a database of 20,000 addresses but i believed he would be the best nominee and president and it has been a fun ride. >> i had not had experience on a political campaign but to reinforce that i joined governor ron a working for him at the olympics in salt lake city you said i will run for governor will you work on my campaign? i had no interest in politics at that point*. i said no, i'm not interested in my wife said you crazy tell him we will move to boston. and three years later, he asked me to be the national finance director for the campaign. i had no idea what campaign fund-raising was but pick somebody you believe in and you will do a good job. >> how old were you?
on this. there was a big "washington post" story a month or so ago about how he was going to be the democrat democrats savior. and i don't think obama has a history of putting himself out there in a consistent way for other candidates. >> bill: you are right. he does not. >> so i would say this is a nice down payment but i would watch very carefully for what his schedule right be in the future. >> bill: and he didn't say -- at the first event, i believe that part of this is getting nancy pelosi back in as speaker. i think he could like to see the house come back to democratic control in 2014. >> yeah, i don't think that's going to happen. but it could happen. i think a more intriguing question and one we're more likely to have to answer is what happens if the gap gets narrowed even further. if you have 10, 12 more -- what is the number they are going to hit? 18? >> bill: i don't know, but democrats picked up eight seats this time. and if it gets more narrow then you are saying maybe they are going to have to work together? >> yeah, figuring out what is goin
a spike in the coverage in washington, d.c. and the fact dmz even talk about barbara walters the talk about keith olberman and about paul ryan and president obama and michelle obama. us weekly is the same, people magazine. there are so many outlets that have no interest in washington because they were traditionally thought of as boring and stale. but just in the past four years and is significantly out. >> host: from politico this evening, people watching in washington, d.c. the headline is mccain it's a tv show, the daughter of senator john mccain. we go to michigan next, to hear from glen. >> i would like to say a couple things about professor hall's appearance of politicians and that kind of thing. one is i guess it means the clich the caller showed this more seriously though, i kind of disagree. i really don't care what any of these people look like. i feel that this kind of underestimating the audience. i think it is really a big problem. that's where you get a lot of this nonsense because the power that the elite or whenever clich you want to use, they don't think people
in a show of military might. dan lothian is live from washington. we're hearing this headline, dan, but at the same time we're also learning from the obama administration they have this so-called playbook for north korea. >> that's right. that was first reported by the "wall street journal" now independently confirmed by cnn that there was this playbook whereby the north korea did one thing, then the u.s. would react in a certain way. now there's this concern though, according to one official that perhaps they may have pushed north korea's leader too far. so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind over the last several weeks the u.s. really has been beefing up its presence in the region. twice last month the u.s. said b-52 bombers that fly over south korea as part of what we are told is a routine mission. there were navy ships sent to the region and then just yesterday, of course, we find out that this missile defense system will be sent to guam. a lot of concern because many u.s. officials really don't know kim jong-un. they believe that he is unpredictable. perhaps c
this is a washington, and that's why i blame this number on them. >> do you think this is a sequester effect? the payroll tax and the increase for the rich. >> this as president obama gets set to announce his budget proposal this week. let's bring in john harwood. >> reporter: good morning, david. this jobs number will play directly into the political arguments as jim cramer suggested, and as jan hatzius suggested a moment ago when he talked about how sequester may have had a modest effect on this jobs number, but it will have more over time. that matches what president obama has said over and over including at this press briefing earlier this year. >> the longer these cuts remain in place the greater the damage to our economy. slow grind that will intensify with each passing day. and then right on cue, alan krueger, he ratcheted up that criticism of washington echoing jim cramer. >> the economy's continuing to heal. what we need to do in washington is avoid self-inflicted wounds. most importantly, they y isequ, the congressional budget office estimates it will reduce job growth by 750,000
